The Nations Remaining in the Land

3Now these are the nations which the LORD left, to prove Israel by them, even as many of Israel as had not known all the wars of Canaan;H1471H3068H3240H5254H3478H3045H4421H3667 2Only that the generations of the children of Israel might know, to teach them war, at the least such as before knew nothing thereof;H7535H1755H1121H3478H3045H3925H4421H6440H3045 3Namely, five lords of the Philistines, and all the Canaanites, and the Sidonians, and the Hivites that dwelt in mount Lebanon, from mount Baalhermon unto the entering in of Hamath.H2568H5633H6430H3669H6722H2340H3427H2022H3844H2022H1179H935H2574 4And they were to prove Israel by them, to know whether they would hearken unto the commandments of the LORD, which he commanded their fathers by the hand of Moses.H5254H3478H3045H8085H4687H3068H6680H1H3027H4872 5And the children of Israel dwelt among the Canaanites, Hittites, and Amorites, and Perizzites, and Hivites, and Jebusites:H1121H3478H3427H7130H3669H2850H567H6522H2340H2983 6And they took their daughters to be their wives, and gave their daughters to their sons, and served their gods.H3947H1323H802H5414H1323H1121H5647H430

Othniel

7And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the LORD, and forgat the LORD their God, and served Baalim and the groves.H1121H3478H6213H7451H5869H3068H7911H3068H430H5647H1168H842 8Therefore the anger of the LORD was hot against Israel, and he sold them into the hand of Chushanrishathaim king of Mesopotamia: and the children of Israel served Chushanrishathaim eight years.H639H3068H2734H3478H4376H3027H3573H4428H763H1121H3478H5647H3573H8083H8141 9And when the children of Israel cried unto the LORD, the LORD raised up a deliverer to the children of Israel, who delivered them, even Othniel the son of Kenaz, Caleb's younger brother.H1121H3478H2199H3068H3068H6965H3467H1121H3478H3467H6274H1121H7073H3612H6996H251 10And the Spirit of the LORD came upon him, and he judged Israel, and went out to war: and the LORD delivered Chushanrishathaim king of Mesopotamia into his hand; and his hand prevailed against Chushanrishathaim.H7307H3068H8199H3478H3318H4421H3068H5414H3573H4428H763H3027H3027H5810H3573 11And the land had rest forty years. And Othniel the son of Kenaz died.H776H8252H705H8141H6274H1121H7073H4191

Ehud

12And the children of Israel did evil again in the sight of the LORD: and the LORD strengthened Eglon the king of Moab against Israel, because they had done evil in the sight of the LORD.H1121H3478H6213H7451H3254H5869H3068H3068H2388H5700H4428H4124H3478H6213H7451H5869H3068 13And he gathered unto him the children of Ammon and Amalek, and went and smote Israel, and possessed the city of palm trees.H622H1121H5983H6002H3212H5221H3478H3423H5892H8558H5899 14So the children of Israel served Eglon the king of Moab eighteen years.H1121H3478H5647H5700H4428H4124H8083H6240H8141 15But when the children of Israel cried unto the LORD, the LORD raised them up a deliverer, Ehud the son of Gera, a Benjamite, a man lefthanded: and by him the children of Israel sent a present unto Eglon the king of Moab.H1121H3478H2199H3068H3068H6965H3467H164H1121H1617H1145H376H334H3225H3027H1121H3478H7971H4503H5700H4428H4124 16But Ehud made him a dagger which had two edges, of a cubit length; and he did gird it under his raiment upon his right thigh.H164H6213H2719H8147H6366H1574H753H2296H4055H3225H3409 17And he brought the present unto Eglon king of Moab: and Eglon was a very fat man.H7126H4503H5700H4428H4124H5700H3966H1277H376 18And when he had made an end to offer the present, he sent away the people that bare the present.H3615H7126H4503H7971H5971H5375H4503 19But he himself turned again from the quarries that were by Gilgal, and said, I have a secret errand unto thee, O king: who said, Keep silence. And all that stood by him went out from him.H7725H6456H1537H559H5643H1697H4428H559H2013H5975H3318 20And Ehud came unto him; and he was sitting in a summer parlour, which he had for himself alone. And Ehud said, I have a message from God unto thee. And he arose out of his seat.H164H935H3427H4747H5944H164H559H1697H430H6965H3678 21And Ehud put forth his left hand, and took the dagger from his right thigh, and thrust it into his belly:H164H7971H8040H3027H3947H2719H3225H3409H8628H990 22And the haft also went in after the blade; and the fat closed upon the blade, so that he could not draw the dagger out of his belly; and the dirt came out.H5325H935H310H3851H2459H5462H1157H3851H8025H2719H990H6574H3318 23Then Ehud went forth through the porch, and shut the doors of the parlour upon him, and locked them.H164H3318H4528H5462H1817H5944H5274 24When he was gone out, his servants came; and when they saw that, behold, the doors of the parlour were locked, they said, Surely he covereth his feet in his summer chamber.H3318H5650H935H7200H1817H5944H5274H559H5526H7272H4747H2315 25And they tarried till they were ashamed: and, behold, he opened not the doors of the parlour; therefore they took a key, and opened them: and, behold, their lord was fallen down dead on the earth.H2342H954H6605H1817H5944H3947H4668H6605H113H5307H4191H776 26And Ehud escaped while they tarried, and passed beyond the quarries, and escaped unto Seirath.H164H4422H4102H5674H6456H4422H8167 27And it came to pass, when he was come, that he blew a trumpet in the mountain of Ephraim, and the children of Israel went down with him from the mount, and he before them.H935H8628H7782H2022H669H1121H3478H3381H2022H6440 28And he said unto them, Follow after me: for the LORD hath delivered your enemies the Moabites into your hand. And they went down after him, and took the fords of Jordan toward Moab, and suffered not a man to pass over.H559H7291H310H3068H5414H341H4124H3027H3381H310H3920H4569H3383H4124H5414H376H5674 29And they slew of Moab at that time about ten thousand men, all lusty, and all men of valour; and there escaped not a man.H5221H4124H6256H6235H505H376H8082H376H2428H4422H376 30So Moab was subdued that day under the hand of Israel. And the land had rest fourscore years.H4124H3665H3117H3027H3478H776H8252H8084H8141

Shamgar

31And after him was Shamgar the son of Anath, which slew of the Philistines six hundred men with an ox goad: and he also delivered Israel.H310H8044H1121H6067H5221H6430H8337H3967H376H1241H4451H3467H3478
